For more than six years, the The Hague nurse Lucia de Berk was wrongfully imprisoned for seven murders of babies and elderly people that were never committed. This adaptation of one of the most controversial lawsuits in Dutch history is a thriller, courtroom drama and biography in one. The film story depicts the true events with partly fictitious characters, including Judith, who works for the Public Prosecutor. When this young and ambitious woman starts doubting the reliability of the investigation after the conviction, her superiors do not want to hear about it.
